Have I told you our big news? No!
WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! And in honor of such an occasion I made a little cake to celebrate.
Of course I have a couple of cake decorating tips for you:
I made this cake using First Street Moist Chocolate Cake Mix - which you may not know but I used this same cake mix to bake the twins Teddy Bear Picnic cake for their birthday last year. I love it because there is enough mix to make a sheet cake. Remember Martha's golden rule though when making cakes: substitute the oil for apple sauce. Trust me, it makes the cake taste so much better.
Use vinyl disposable gloves when mixing fondant colors. You can wash them in between mixing the different colors.
As you are probably aware by now, I am one of the Smart & Final #sfsmarties and so I would like to let you know that Smart & Final are currently holding a contest where 20 winners will each receive a VIP bag of First Street products valued at $50, plus a $50 gift card.
5 winners will be selected each week over 4 weeks.
I have received this VIP bag of goodies and trust me, you will love it so I encourage everyone to head on over to the Smart & Final Facebook Page to enter.
ALSO check out this great promotion that Smart & Final are running until May 10.
Disclosure: As one of the #sfsmarties I was compensated for this post on behalf of Collective Bias and did receive a VIP bag of First Street products. #FirstStreetVIP
